Motorola Introduces New CDMA EV-DO Base Site Controller

Motorola introduced its new IP-BSC-DO, a scalable EV-DO Base Site Controller (BSC) platform that enables CDMA operators to quickly and cost effectively upgrade the DO broadband data capacity. The new IP BSC provides 12 times the site capacity and IP data session capacity compared to the first generation DO BSC, while using significantly less floor space.

The new IP-BSC-DO, which is expected to be available for commercial shipment in Q2 2008, is built using a modular ATCA hardware platform.
It combines EV-DO packet controller functions (PCF) with the operations and maintenance controller in a single Motorola platform for CDMA2000 EV-DO. The functions of the IP-BSC-DO include CDMA2000 EV-DO traffic and signaling control and routing between a Radio Access Network (RAN) and the Packet Data Serving Node (PDSN), authentication of users attempting to access the EV-DO system, and operator management of the IP-BSC-DO.
